I hope you're kidding
You look at the video of the wings losing in OT...every skater the Wings had on the ice were standing around the crease when the puck went in
Some of them were out of position maybe, but they were at least trying to make a play.
That is nothing like what Ovechkin is doing here. Literally coasting towards the guy about to score a goal. He had the best seat in the house.
The YT clip shows the best angle. I thought he came off the bench but he was on the ice the whole time, coasting from center ice.
Still, he put up a 41 goal/95 point performance this season. Hes not paid to play defense, hes there to put the biscuit in the basket.
When you're paid $9.5 million a year you're expected to be a star player. And a star player doesn't coast towards the net like that.
That was the game winner. In the playoffs.
Do you guys seriously see nothing wrong with his play there?
I wonder how his teammates feel about his effort ? Yeah, Semin was clearly the problem in Washington.
